Picture of the Week

Week 07: Eindhoven and home

My main picture of week 7 is not necessarily my best picture of the week, but it is significant for a couple of reasons. It is a portrait of my daughter, whom I love very much; and I took the picture with my newly acquired Bronica 100mm lens, which I had been looking to buy for some time. It is quite rare and not many come up for sale in the usual places. So I used my daughter as one of the test subjects. The picture is made by window light, on Fuji 400CN film.

Alternate 5:
Many Dutch homes have a sign on the door saying that they do not wish to receive advertising flyers or junk mail. This family wrote it in their own words: “we don’t have any money anyway!”

Alternate 6:
And finally, a picture in a garden south of Utrecht, where I found this intriguing statue:
